We like to refer to ourselves as the "big tent" party. We say there is room for everyone within the Democratic Party.
When all is said and done, like it or not, that is the ultimate question the new FDP chair is going to be asked by Democrats in this state.
Why so much fright about Dwight? This morning I had an email with a column from The Florida Squeeze about the Florida Democratic Party chair's race. This article was particularly interesting because it focused on me just as much as it focused on the candidates and the race for chair. It also mainly trashed Dwight Bullard, no other candidate.
Don't hate the player ... hate the game. Isn't that what Andrew Korge, dispatched primary opponent of Dwight Bullard, said when he compared African Americans and "Bernie Bros" to the Tea Party in one of his infamous Facebook rants? See said rant below.
As everyone knows, the fiasco that took place in Miami-Dade County on Dec. 20 has given us Stephen Bittel as Miami-Dade's committeeman. Not fairly, mind you. Not as the will of the people, mind you.
Let's face it. There is a certain faction of the Jewish community that will never, ever, ever, ever, ever accept Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison as Democratic National Committee Chair, no matter what he does, or how he does it.
On Monday Stephen Bittel sent out an email to Miami-Dade Democratic Executive Committee members saying activists have encouraged him to run for FDP chair. Well, being the knight in shining armor a la Donald Trump, he is heeding their call.
Yes, you read that correctly.
No, Florida Democrats are not going to have a repeat of 2013. As you may recall, strings were pulled, arms were twisted, people were bought off in 2013 to get Allison Tant in as Florida Democratic Party chair.
That's how the headlines will read in 2018 if Sen. Bill Nelson doesn't stop playing around in the Florida Democratic Party chair race.
